Question? What is your thoughts on the world of christiandom?
I believe that MOST what is called christian is NOT.
To be frank and upfront MOST so-called christian churches have a Works + Faith salvation which is NOT salvation.
(Galatians 1:8-9) But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. (9) As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
The Bible makes it VERY CLEAR what the Gospel is
(1 Corinthians 15:1-4) Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; (2) By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
(3) For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; (4) And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.
(John 3:16-18) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (18) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
In order to have eternal life and go to heaven when you die an individual MOST TRUST in Christ ALONE and his COMPLETE PAYMENT on the cross for their sins, NOTHING else can be added to the finished work of Christ.
(John 19:30) When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
(Ephesians 2:8,9) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (9) Not of works, lest any man should boast.
ON THE CROSS:
– Christ DIED for you. Romans 5:8
– Christ PAID your sins in full. 2 Peter 2:24
– Christ RESURRECTED 3 days later from the dead PROVING that God HAD ACCEPTED the complete payment Christ made for your sins. 2 Cor. 5:21
NO WHERE in scripture do you find WORKS + FAITH = SALVATION.
(Romans 4:5,6) But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness*. (6) Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness* without works.
*Righteousness Means Salvation / Eternal Life
As I stated in the beginning, as as WHOLE not individually the World of Christendom IS NOT christian. The GREATER tragedy is that MANY have been DECIEVED with a FALSE GOSPEL, FALSE HOPE and a FALSE JESUS.
(Matthew 7:13,14) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: (14) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
(Matthew 7:21-23) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father(God)* which is in heaven. (22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? (23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
*Will of the Father(God) = Trusting Christ ALONE as Saviour the COMPLETE PAYMENT for your Sins.
(John 6:40) And this is the will of him(God,Father) that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins. the MOMENT you believe(TRUST in Christ ALONE) you recieve eternal life.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
